I hope the first newsletter of spring finds you well. It has been unseasonably warm in eastern Ontario. My daffodils are up six inches, crocuses are open, grass is growing, neighbors are wearing shorts. I am used to it being cool for a few more weeks yet but I might as well enjoy it while I can -- who knows what the summer will bring.
I have posted two articles at the Large and Lovely, BellaOnline website for you this week, one about the We Stand bulletins in Georgia and the other about a new swim/active wear alternative.

Have a great week!
